Unstoppable To Film In Mill Hall In October

Movie-makers coming to Mill Hall

MILL HALL - The movie's "Unstoppable" - and the film crew is rolling into the borough in October.

The stars also will be coming to this region, although whether they'll be in Mill Hall or not hasn't been established. And, if you are willing to drive to Tyrone, you could appear in the movie yourself.

That's according to Justin Duncan, Twentieth Century Fox's key assistant location manager for the movie.

Duncan wrote a letter, addressed to home owners and business owners, outlining when and where the major movie will be filmed in our area.

"Unstoppable" features superstar Denzel Washington, Chris Pine ("Star Trek") and Rosario Dawson ("Seven Pounds," "Eagle Eye") with Jessy Schram ("Jane Doe" TV series) and Kevin Dunn ("Live Free or Die," "Transformers" I and II).

The action/thriller, directed by Tony Scott ("Top Gun," "Enemy of the State") is set on a train. The plot reportedly centers on a train carrying a highly dangerous material that must be stopped before a lethal tragedy ensues.

Pennsylvania is a natural setting for a railroad film, and the state's tax break for movie-making helped swing the deal. Much of the filming will be done in Pittsburgh, but not all of it.

Starting Oct. 5, filming is scheduled for Tyrone, Martha Furnace, Julian, Unionville, Milesburg and Eagleville at Blanchard, for approximately four to five weeks, according to Duncan. Filming also will take place "in different towns along the Nittany and Bald Eagle Railroad line" which runs through Mill Hall.

The plan is, according to Duncan, for a train to run at above-normal speeds and for at least one filming vehicle to follow alongside it for miles. Two helicopters also will be utilized for aerial shots. More....
